As an art curator[11] she creates events such as "Art Unanchored", an art festival that took place on a ship traveling between Vienna and Bratislava,[12][13][14][15] and several queer art shows.[16] She is often part of art and film award juries.[17]

Her work as a founder and organizer of the Porn Film Festival Vienna[18] focuses on conceptualizing the festival, creating artistic highlights and working on programming and outreach. Hagendorfer and her team, according to the Austrian mainstream press, are trying to bridge the gap between feminist and queer theory, art, and pornography.[19][20][21][22][23][24][25][26]

She writes essays and articles,[27] but also lectures on politics and technology, for example at Hackers on Planet Earth 2020[28] or TEDxVienna.[29]

Since 2019 she has been active as a film producer (e.g. the 2021 horror feature Masking Threshold by Johannes Grenzfurthner) and filmmaker. Her first film is the queer sci-fi comedy short Fudliaks! (2021).[30][31]
